Consistent with much of the rest of the Patron line. This has a stronger agave taste than other Patron tequilas and is off the charts smooth. However, for $150+ a bottle, it needs to be more than that. Not enough flavor or character to merit such a high price tag. The crystal bottle is beautifully wrapped in a velvet bag and the maple box is a nice touch. It's more flash than substance.
A decent tequila that looks good on a shelf, but a terrible value for the price.
When i found this priced around 65$ i couldnt resist it. its very smooth indeed. But when your drinking smooth spirits like this, you want silence, serenity, and all time in the world to just explore every aspect of it. It aint tequila you shoot or drink at a full smacked bar as its very subtle and might seem to vanish like a puff of smoke compared to outer, more pungent and raw-edged blancos. But for 65$ this is a top shelf relaxation drink IMHO.
This is a good if not great tequila but for the price you could just about buy a case of an even better silver tequila. Considering that $50-$60 is usually the most expensive price for a great silver tequila the price is just simply too much. Most of the cost is because of the name. It is very smooth and has an agave taste to it. It can be sipped but is not as smooth as most reposados and anejos. By its self Gran Patron is an enjoyable tequila but if you are going to spend $200 on a bottle of tequila there are just so many more great buys out there.
